    He has been consistent in playing. But the point is he will be facing either lindan or lee chong wei in the first rounds. That was the problem. I think he might reach the semis if he plays consistently here. Lets hope for the best. All the very best for you ajay.

    Will Ajay Jayaram be able to elevate his status at the international level?

    Sam Willis
    http://blogs.bettor.com/Will-Ajay-Ja...eature-a199785

    Excerpts:

    If someone has to name a nation that is becoming a major threat for the super powers of badminton world, India would be the right choice as its campaigners are catching up at great pace and their performance in last few years clearly shows that.

    Saina Nehwal, P. V. Sindhu, Jwala Gutta, Ashwini Ponnappa, Parupalli Kashyap and last but not the least Ajay Jayaram are the most prominent shuttlers who have registered their presence in the arena.

    Especially, the young Mens Singles expert Ajay Jayaram has performed exceptionally well in the recent past and now the badminton pundits are declaring him the future hope along with his senior companion P. Kashyap.

    ...Ajay Jayarams latest outing was 2012 French Open where he challenged the veteran Dane Peter Gade and played impeccable badminton in this hard fought battle. He put all of his brilliance in the game and earned a great deal of admiration for his fighting spirit.

    Now the Indian lad will be participating in two back-to-back home events, India International Challenge and 2012 India Open GP and these badminton tournaments will be a test case for him.

    Ajay Jayaram will have to put an extra effort to gain a permanent spot in the list of world beaters and it is right time for him to elevate his class.

    Just 70 points short btw Vittinghus and jayaram which made him to wait for one more year to look out for his performance in Superseries tournaments to participate.

    Vittinghus - 41670
    Ajay Jayaram - 41600

    Till October he was in the reckoning but he needed decent performances in China and HongKong open which didnt happened and Chen Long by winning these two last tourneys leapfrogged from behind him to 2nd position and kicked him out.... nonetheless if he would have been able to do so he would have achieved more then what he himself might have expected before the start of the season, but thats what you set out to do.............. err outdo everyone else....

    Comparing ChenLong to Ajay ...!!!! ChenLong is World No.2 He even has beaten Lee Chong Wei.

    Ajay is nothing short of talent ..I watched many matches of him. He has excellent deception and wonderful strokes. I hope he will do well in the coming tournaments and prove all the critics go wrong..

    My dear friend, nobody is comparing the two players you mentioned...

    But you need to understand how the superseries ranking works... its different from the world ranking you are pointing of... or even Ajay from his 32nd ranking in the world wouldnt have been so close to a lace amngst the worlds top 8... for your knowledge Chen Long made it because of his wins in the last two super series tournaments or else he would not have been able to play here... Ajay was ranked 8th and Chn Long 9th till first week of October in the superseries standings even Lin dan isnt qualified to play the SuperSeries finals and he is world rank 3 now{not that actually reflects his talent or calibre} even if he decided to play the China and Hongkong Open and won them it would have been difficult for him to make it to the superseries finals....

    Indias No.2 looks to break into World top-15

    Tue Jan 01 2013
    http://www.indianexpress.com/news/in...op15/1052636/0

    Excerpts:

    ...What were the high-points?
    The high points would be the semifinals at the China Masters, my wins over Kenichi Tago, Wang Zheng Ming, twice extending the world no. 1, Lee Chong Wei to 3 sets, and a year ending super series rank of 11.
    What were the low points?
    The low points would be missing out on the Olympics and on the Superseries finals by a whisker.
    What were the significant changes in your game over this period? Cant say Ive been entirely successful, but I have brought in a little more variation in my attack.

    ...Which were the important matches in terms of playing against higher ranked players? If your talking about the most important wins, Id say it would be against Kenichi Tago and Wang Zheng Ming. And if its the losses which I believe could have really made the difference Id say against Hu Yun in the China Masters semifinals and against Lee Chong Wei at the Hong Kong Open.

    ...What was the impact of the bronze medal on the sport in the country?
    Its definitely huge. Thanks to Sainas feat badmintons now amongst the top sports in the country. There is an increased awareness about the sport which means there will be more kids taking to badminton, more funds etc which will definitely push badminton in the country to a whole new level.
    Mumbai would obviously covet you....but which team in the IBL would you be keen to represent? Well, havent thought too much about it. But yes, definitely Mumbai would be my first choice if I had the option.

    ...What has this year taught you and whats the new year resolution? This year has taught me that if you are persistent and stick to your beliefs, no matter what the disappointments and obstacles, success definitely awaits you. My new year resolution is to become mentally tougher and go on court every time with a pumped up attitude.

    ...Whats the ranking target for the coming year?
    It would be to break into the top 15.
    Anything you wish to leave behind ? Anything you wish to not change from 2012? I would like to leave behind the disappointments of this year. I dont want to change my attitude of never giving up and keep working harder no matter what the losses.

    Ajay Jayaram out of Korea Open with food poisoning


    http://www.sportskeeda.com/2013/01/0...ood-poisoning/

    EXCERPTS:

    World No.31 Ajay Jayaram, due to take part in the Korea Open Superseries Premier, withdrew from the tournament due to food poisoning. Jayaram was admitted to hospital on Friday after he started vomiting, and he was discharged on Sunday. The second highest ranked Indian was due to play former World Champion Chen Jin in his opening round match. The Indian team thus sports a lean look as it begins its season with the Korea Open tomorrow. Only the top singles players have been fielded, unlike in recent Superseries events which have seen the second rung of hopefuls. In Jayaram’s absence, P Kashyap is the sole Indian representative in the men’s singles. The world No.14 will take on England’s Rajiv Ouseph first; if he gets past Ouseph, he is likely to take on Hong Kong’s Hu Yun next. In the women’s singles, Saina Nehwal, the third seed, faces Thai newcomer Sapsiree Taerattanachai, while compatriot PV Sindhu plays the same opponent she lost to in the Syed Modi International final in December, Lindaweni Fanetri of Indonesia.

    Ajay Jayaram should be back in competition at the German Open, after a long and hopefully restful period. If he plays to his potential he will probably meet Tommy Sugiarto in the R16. If he gets past the higher-seeded Tommy, he will probably meet Sho Sasaki in the QF round.

    One round at a time.....

    From Ajay Jayaram's Facebook page - February 21, 2014

    "Hello everyone .. Been a while since I've posted .. I had been struggling with my shoulder since December. An MRI scan revealed a tear in the labrum. Unfortunately the only solution to this was a surgery which I underwent a couple of weeks ago. This means I will be out of competitive action for the next few months. Definitely a setback as I will be missing out on important tournaments. But I guess this is a part of an athlete's life and will therefore accept the challenge and continue to remain positive. Will use this break as an opportunity to spend some quality time at home with my parents and probably engage myself in things I normally wouldn't. A big thanks to all of you and I'm sure with your support and wishes I'll be back in action soon. Cheers !!!"

    He will play at the Indonesia and Australia SS events next month.
